2. If you're looking for a great alternative gift, why not "Create a Job" in honor of a friend or family member? For as little as $15 you can help a farmer in Kenya purchase a few chickens or boost a small business in any one of the 11 countries where we work. Click here to give a budding entrepreneur an opportunity to use her gifts and support her family.
